    We investigate here GL(4,R)-gauge theories of gravity based on variational principles. The components of tetrad fields e[sup (α), sub μ], the components of metrics g[sub (α)(β)], and the components of connections Γ[sub λ, sup (α), sub (β)] are taken as the gravitational...

    In variational data assimilation (VDA) for meteorological and/or oceanic models, the assimilated fields are deduced by combining the model and the gradient of a cost functional measuring discrepancy between model solution and observation, via a first-order optimality system. However, existence...

    We propose a general approach to deal with nonlinear, nonconvex variational problems based on a reformulation of the problem resulting in an optimization problem with linear cost functional and convex constraints. As a first step we explicitly explore these ideas to some one-dimensional...
